    Login trouble on the main site

    Hello Hivemind!

    This is what I get when I try to login on the main site:
    ERROR
    : Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.

    Any idea what's happening? Cookies are actually enabled and it worked until yesterday or so...

    Cheers!

    Edit: Strange... Now it works again. Never mind then.

    In that case, I'll hijack the thread to complain when you log in to post a comment it always takes you back to the front page. REALLY ANNOYING! I'm sure most wordpress sites don't do that. I know it's been like that for years, but isn't there some way to fix it???

    I'm getting this exact problem. Nothing constructive to add, just comforted I'm not alone.

    Hmpf... I got the same cookie error again. Very strange.

    And I also agree with you. It's annoying to get back to the front page. Would be nice if someone fixes that.

    Try this, RPS admin monkeys:

    or there are many plugins.

    I'm also having this problem, though it hasn't resolved itself like OP's did. I can't login to the main site, it says I need to enable cookies, even though they are.

    Works for me...
    Try erasing the existing cookies. Do you have JS enabled?
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    Hi! I'd just like to add that I'm having the same issue too. Only on my Mac for some reason. PC is fine. I've tried various browsers and attempted to allow RPS as an exception through filters that technically aren't even activated (but I did it anyway.)

    So yes, I cannot log in to the main site on this machine. Bit annoying. This has been the case for a couple of month at least. How am I supposed to write comments on this website at work now!

    Did a bit of googling and found some posts:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/c...second-website

    And another... Long thread

    I have the exact same problem, and now I can't post random comments, it's quite worrying.

    Oh, apparently I can log to the site only on firefox, and to the forum only on safari. Odd.

    I'm having the exact same problem but only on my work PC, which is behind weird proxies and so forth. Tried all sensible things like clearing cookies and they are definitely enabled.
